Japanese inventor, Yazaki Eletronics, has just built a one-pound keyboard with six keys that lets blind people take notes. It stores the data on what is presumed to be a flash drive. When you type, the keyboard speaks each letter as a tone and can be configured to type in Japanese, Chinese or Roman script. The keyboard can then be hooked up to a computer so that you can download your transcripts. Of course, all those features don't come cheap-it is priced at $1,750.
